Ballerina Katie!


With all the dancing going on in this house, Den thought it time Katie went to classes. I said she is too little and to wait until next year when she would be three! NO! O-k-a-y...so we found a great place that would give her a two lesson trial to check on her maturity etc. Today was the first lesson. She was ssssooooo excited (told me she liked dancing school and we had not even arrived yet!)....I was a little worried. But I forgot...I have a girl who thinks she is already a teenager. I was so proud of her....I got really choked up watching her. It was so great...they warmed up to Hi5 (they had her hook line and sinker on that one) and then a bit of jazz ballet followed by some tap. Gosh she did well. For two and a half years, her reaction time might be a bit slower (most of the other girls are a year or two older than her) and the balancing on one foot will come....but she followed it all and had a ball! Could not really take photos as parents are not usually allowed in....first lesson exemption. Parents can come in - cameras and all - first week of the month.....next week. So stay tuned for more! She came home and watched "Angelina Ballerina" when I told her the title she said "just like Katie"!!

WOW! What a big girl. I'm still looking into something like this for Caroline. . . probably just on a one-on-one basis, though.

Can't wait to see more pictures!!!

Helen,
That is a dear story and would be great on a layout just the way you told it. She's a doll! And only 2 and a half.
Thanks for the peek into her world,
Joni
